Back to the Nineties

Look at this bad boy.  My latest studio kit is probably the oldest.

What, oh what, is he thinking?!, I hear you scream. 

Well, while super clear, high quality monitoring is essential, some of the best sound engineers keep an old fashioned portable stereo in their studios, so they never lose sight of what their mix will sound like, coming out of ‘normal’ speakers.  I found out about this from Marc Mozart’s book, ’Your Mix Sucks’, where in the opening chapter, he tells readers to “steal Mom’s kitchen radio”!  He goes on to say, “We are mixing for the consumer, not for your nearfield speakers!”
